Soap fans were excited to see Van Hansis (Ex-Luke Snyder, As the World Turns) return to serialized storytelling in the compelling look at a gay relationship gone south in Kit Williamson’s EastSiders!
The web series was launched in December, and those who watched the two webisodes know that the series was left with a cliffhanger: when Thom (Hansis) chased after a very drunk Cal (Williamson) after Thom bumped into the “other man” he has been seeing at an “End Of The World” party during the Christmas holiday season.
When the series went to black, Cal was left either run-over or passed out near a car! But now to find out what happens next, Williamson and his team need your help and have launched a campaign on Kickstarter to help garner funds to complete 9 full episodes of EastSiders!
Thus far the campaign has been quite successful! In the first twelve hours, EastSiders raised $3,000 and as of this afternoon, they have raised $10,011 and are trying to reach their minimum goal of $15,000 to continue the story.
